076- Shamrocks

I took this photo 2 weeks ago when I was at niece-Cindy's Rosehaven Cottage and saved it special for today. Doesn't this just embody Saint Patrick's Day. I just love the color green and this one is just so *lickably* good!

I'm grateful for my Scotch/Irish ancestors who've passed their love of our Savior Jesus Christ down through the generations.

076- shamrock

A friend shared this on Facebook today so I've cut and pasted it here. I like this idea better than what we normally associate with St Patrick's Day.

St. Patrick spread God's word in Ireland. He used the Shamrock to explain the trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Today was not made a holiday to celebrate Irish culture or drink beer. It was made a holiday to celebrate the life of someone who spent his life sharing the gift of God's love and eternal hope. Thus giving them not just one day of happiness but showing them the way to true happiness for eternity. Let's celebrate that!

I love those shamrocks! They are delightful. I love the way they snuggle up under all the tall plants and peer out at you perkily, just waiting to be noticed.
